Maybe you'll find answer here: http://lists.freepascal.org/fpc-pascal/2012-January/032051.html. There are twenty mails in that thread only.  :)

Thanks for your answer and for the link.

I've read it with interest, but in my point of view, no one  gives a good reason for not activating it by default.

Best regards

I think the answer is that FPC developers are conservative. They implemented it because of Delphi compatibility but they don't consider it a must-have feature.
